Re: Is it crazy that I STILL feel EXTREMELY tense watching the Hingis/Venus Semi Fina
I just re-watched the matches from the U.S Open Semi Finals in 1999 and 2000.
I know it's been well documented how amazing these matches are between Hingis and Venus but my god....I was still nervous in both - especially in 2000 (since Hingis lost)......I know the results all too well but Martina playing that ''safe'' overhead at 6-4 3-6 5-3 30-15 to take 2 match points still makes me nervous as hell and i cringe everytime after that shot.....Venus's play is just incredible though and it just makes me wish those matches could have gone on for years and years.......the crowd and just everything in 1999 (when Martina won) and 2000 (when Venus won) I dont think has ever been matched. Everyone world-wide could feel how much both of them wanted to win.....just amazing.
I'm right there with you!! Those matches were so intense!!
and yeah, that safe overhead from Hingis was a gift for us Williams fans! I remember watching those matches. In '99 just watching Venus' serve FALL APART! That was painful.
JA ME KA IS THE GOAT!!!
